Colorado GOP candidate criticizes Palin

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. – Conservative favorite Sarah Palin is headed to Colorado – but one Republican isn’t happy about her timing.

Republican Senate candidate Ken Buck said Monday that it’s “rude” for the former Alaska governor to headline a Denver speech on Saturday, hours after the state GOP gathers for a statewide assembly in Loveland, about 50 miles from Denver.

Last week, Palin included Buck’s rival in positive comments to an anti-abortion group. Palin called former Lt. Gov. Jane Norton and other conservative women “pink elephants” who would succeed in office.

Buck and Norton are both seeking the Republican nomination. Both Palin and Buck are favorites of conservatives and tea party groups.
